Attend IDC 2020

We have packed a whole lot of content into three exhilarating days in Seattle! 


Day 1 of the experience kicks off with the IDSA Education Symposium and skill-building workshop sessions. That evening is our largest celebration of design excellence, the 2020 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) Ceremony & IDC Opening Gala*. 


Days 2 and 3 are jam packed with main stage presentations, keynotes, design gallery exhibitions, net-working, lots of coffee, happy hours, studio tours, and more!

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from, and interact with, some of the top minds in our profession. Events like this are where you make connections that last a lifetime and change your perception of what's possible.

As always, IDSA members receive discounted rates for this and all of our other events throughout the year. Consider joining today.
